Does picking a scab make scarring more or less likely? I've read arguments for both outcomes...I'd like to know specifically for a rather deep cut.
I vote for...: More likely. With a typical scab, that is nature's way of helping the cut heal. There are some occasions when a doctor will remove a scab and clean out some dead cells and other goop in the wound, to let healing restart in a fresher way... but that is the occasional situation. Usually, a cut heals better if one doesn't pick at (and pull off) pieces of scab every day or two. ...Read more

I bought a pack of cimetidine tablets and noticed they smell bad, like rotten eggs. Is this normal or are they off? Exp date is 8/2015.
Very inexpensive.: May be a bad lot, or byproduct in manufacuring. Still should be good, but you can complain to your pharmacist and might get new product. But first ask them if they smell like that. Generic american product does not have this and is available over the counter without a prescription needed! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

From canada my bf used 2 kleenez not bare hands to pick up dead baby bird and dispose.Than carried in groceries without washing hands. Contamination?
Germs are everywher: Germs are everywhere, I would not expect that the two of you were going to eat off of those grocery bags. With food preparation and refrigeration your bacterial burden is usually reduced significantly. I wouldn't be any more concerned about this ,that if you went outside and played in the yard and came in and ate dinner without washing your hands. The normal human body has a great immune system. ...Read more
I've noticed on my z pack it says no antiacids 2 hours before ok can I take my omperazole after i taken my z pack what's the deal here?
Azithromycin: Azithromycin taken at the same time as aluminum- or magnesium- based antacids, such as mylanta or maalox may result in binding of the Azithromycin and prevent it from being absorbed from the intestine. Taken on an empty stomach this may lead to gastric upset, and food will delay absorption. You can take Omeprazole after you have taken the azithro. ...Read more
